I'm not crazy about Burque but I use it once in a while when I'm in the right company which is right here on Duke City Fix, as a simpatico sign of cultural inclusion and appreciation.. Most visitors to this site like to toss it around in a light-hearted fashion to demonstrate how "with it" they are. "Burque" combined with a head nod, two uplifted, palms-out hands a two-note whistle through the teeth, a thin belt, pink, pegged legged pants,and clicking horseshoe taps are as old as the fifties as least, "stylin'" in today's venacular, appreciating yesteryear, the ability of two or several New Mexico languages and lifestyles to merge. It's acknowledging tradition and enjoying the fact that there are fellow travelers who appreciated it. It's not much different that cowboys calling that city in Otero County "Almagoarda," or Socorro "SOCK-a-row" if you want to mimic an Eastern tourist. Hey, why can't we all just get along.
